Abstract:

The audit was performed in response to a complaint to the Defense Hotline. The complaint alleged that the plan by the U.S. Army Engineer District Europe to gut the Amelia Earhart building was unnecessary and was based on the U.S. Army Engineer District Europe 5 preference for large and open work spaces. The complaint alleged that the Government could save about 2.2 million if existing wails and bathrooms were not demolished. Further, the complaint alleged that work was improperly classified and funded and that minor construction costs exceeded the statutory limit of 300,000. Objectives. The audit objectives were to determine whether the scope of the construction project was excessive and whether the work was properly classified and funded. We also evaluated the effectiveness of the management controls as they applied to the other objectives. A separate report will discuss other funding issues related to the Amelia Earhart project and other projects.
